High School Graduation In Detroit
A student played high school football in Detroit . He was a great running back, but a really poor student.
At graduation, he didn't have enough credits. But he was a great football star and the students held a rally and demanded the principal give him his diploma anyway. They were so insistent that the principal agreed if Dwayne could answer one question correctly, he would give him his diploma.
The one-question test was held in the auditorium and all the students packed the place. It was standing room only.

The principal was on the stage and told him to come up. The principal had the diploma in his hand and said, "Dwayne, if you can answer this question correctly I'll give you your diploma." Dwayne said he was ready and the principal asked him the question. "Dwayne," he said, "How much is three times seven?"

Dwayne looked up at the ceiling and the down at his shoes, pondering the question. The other students began chanting, "Graduate him anyway! Graduate him anyway!"
Then, Dwayne held up his hand and the auditorium became silent. He said, "I think... I know the answer ..   Three times seven is twenty-one."

A hush fell over the auditorium and all the other students began another chant...   "Give him another chance!... Give him another chance!
